Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Costa Teguise

Arrive in Lanzarote. Taxi from Arrecife Airport to the hotel - 14 km. The rest of the day is free to enjoy the beach resort of Costa Teguise. You’ll have time to prepare for your leisure cycling trip in Lanzarote. 

Day 2: Costa Teguise – Haria (52 km / 32 miles)

Today’s ride is from Costa Teguise to the inland town of Haría. En route, we have the opportunity to visit Manrique's famous works, including El Jardín de Cactus, Los Jameos del Agua, and El Mirador del Río which form an integral part of the volcanic landscape. We also have the opportunity to visit the volcanic caves of La Cueva de los Verdes. Riding through traditional fishing villages below  the impressive Monte Corona, we finally arrive in the picturesque village of Haría, surrounded by forests of tropical palm trees. 

Day 3: Haria - San Bartolome (43 km / 28 miles)

From Haría, we take the road down towards Teguise, once the capital of the island. Our route provides spectacular views down over the coast and out to sea. Teguise itself is a small but delightful town with traditional architecture and pleasant bars offering welcome refreshment. From here we continue towards San Bartolomé and the fascinating wine-producing area of La Geria, and on to our country hotel where we spend the next two nights. 

Day 4: San Bartolome Loop (50 km / 31 miles)

Today is a day for relaxation and rest spent in our rural hotel. We can choose to spend the day by the pool,  enjoy a round ride, or both. Our round ride takes us towards the beautiful beach of Famara with the spectacular backdrop of volcanic cliffs. After following the coast, we head across the extensive lava fields and lunar like landscape back to San Bartolomé. This is a 50 km circuit, but shorter routes to Fundación César Manrique or Teguise are available. 

Day 5: San Bartolome - Playa Blanca (58 km - 36 miles)

From San Bartolomé, we head towards the islands main attraction, the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. This is where Lanzarote's volcanic nature is at its most spectacular. The eruptions of 1730 - 1736 buried around a quarter of the island, including several villages, and gave rise to the impressive lava and volcano landscape that we see today. From here we head down to the south of the island, stopping en route to visit the seaside volcanic crater of El Golfo, before we finally reach the seaside village of Playa Blanca.  

Day 6: Playa Blanca Loop (70 km - 43 miles)

Playa Blanca sits at the very south of the island and looks across to Fuerteventura. Today we can take a boat across to Corralejo and enjoy a visit or a ride on another island. Alternatively, we can enjoy a day in Playa Blanca and take the opportunity to visit the nearby coves and beaches of Papagayo, the best on the island and completely unspoilt by tourism. Another option is to visit El Golfo for a seafood lunch by the beach. Route to El Golfo 36 km - 20 miles. Fuerteventura circuit 70 km - 43 miles.

Day 7: Playa Blanca - Arrecife (47 km / 30 miles)

From Playa Blanca, we ride across the dramatic hills of Femés before heading to the wine country of La Geria. Here, the unusual vineyard cultivation techniques have given rise to a fascinating landscape that is unique to this region, and produces some extremely fine wines. We then descend to the coast and  follow a lovely promenade from Puerto del Carmen to Arrecife. 

Day 8: Arrecife

Departure after breakfast.
